Spring Flowers

May 10th, 2021

Although the lack of rain this winter has me deeply concerned I have to say that the flower gardens are exceptionally vibrant this year. The Menzies Baby Blue Eyes is one of my favorite native California species. It is prolific from the Baja to norther California.  The Botanical name is Nemophila menziesii  named after Scottish botanist Archibald Menzies who traveled aboard the HMS Discovery with George Vancouver on his exploration of the west coast from 1791-1795.
